I am writing this letter to the Editor with a heavy heart to warn my fellow public servants against some false prophets who are spread across the province with the sole purpose of robbing them money, cars and houses. I am saying this from a wide background for obvious reasons. There are a number of heartrending cases of public servants who have fallen into the trap of giving their pensions, car and houses to these fake pastors and prophets in the name of false religion. Most of the public servants are convinced that when they give all their pensions and belonging to these prophets they will be blessed beyond measure.

It is the mark of any worth leader to share his/her vision with the team under his/her authority. This is important for two reasons. A leader needs a team that buys into the set vision. It is also crucial that the team that does the work in implementing the vision is well informed of the direction the leader wants it to move. During the month of July 2019, Members of the Executive Committee (MECs) in the North West Province presented their visions as leaders of respective portfolios. I took interest in MEC Madoda Sambatha’s blueprint for the Health department.
